Senior Executives – Keys to Move Forward

senior executives key to successDilemma for Some Senior Executives

With many senior-level clients, I find that they probably had a plan to “get them where they’ve gotten to,” but they don’t have a plan to take them from this point forward. They often seem a bit “lost” and disoriented once they reach the later stages of their careers; once they’ve “arrived.”

New Goals and Priorities

These clients often need a new set of developmental goals and priorities to keep them engaged and productive in their work. In some cases, they even need to re-define their professional identities in order to adapt to current circumstances.

In other cases, they may need to develop new skills. Skill-building should never stop, although some mature executives have gotten complacent about this and struggle with this notion.

Strategies for Continuing Success

Below are a few techniques that I encourage my senior-level clients to implement:

  • Expand self-awareness
  • Establish new, adaptive career objectives
  • Increase engagement
  • Develop new skills

By employing these strategies, senior executives can bring more value and impact to their employers. This, in turn, makes them more competitive and extends the timeline of their active employment.
